Congratulations are in order for Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen and R&B singer John Legend.
The couple is expecting their first child together and were elated to share the news with their fans on Monday night. Both Chrissy and John are active members of the social media community, so it was only fitting that they each took to their individual Instagram and Twitter pages to confirm that the very first baby Legend is in the making.
John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant :) As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx
On the career front, John is currently still enjoying the success of his 2013 Love In The Future album while making rounds to serenade his famous friends at their wedding ceremonies as well as other high-profile events. Meanwhile, Chrissy continues to maintain a comical…and sometimes controversial….presence on social media in addition to making strides in her profession as a model & television personality.

When they’re not burning up red carpets across the globe, Mr. & Mrs. Legend can be found using their celebrity to advocate for various social causes in and outside of the African-American community.
The couple married in 2013 after 4 years of dating and have lightly documented their challenges with conceiving via social media.
